We’ve frequently spoken about the best electric scooters or motorcycles in India but never bicycles, a genre that’s been growing exponentially in the past couple of years. Let’s remedy that, shall we? Listed below are the five best electric cycles in India ranging from one of the most affordable to the most expensive. Read on for more details...
Lectro Ezephyr TX 700C SS: Rs 21,000
The Hero Lectro series is a tried and tested platform. We actually rode the EZephyr a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it. You can read about it here. The cycles from Hero have just gotten better since then with a number of options to choose from. So if you’re looking for an affordable electric cycle, the Ezephyr TX 700C SS could be one way to go. The entry-level product is perfect for someone who’s looking to use the bike for daily commutes or leisure rides.
It packs a 250W, 36V hub motor with 40Nm of peak torque. The frame-integrated 5.8Ah Lithium-ion battery can deliver a claimed range of 25-40 kilometres depending on the mode. It can be fully charged in about 4 hours. The three levels of electric assist ensure an easy ride despite having a single-speed drivetrain.
Nuze i1: Rs 30,616
The Nuze i1 makes sense for those whose usage primarily consists of city rides, town pathways, and open roads. The road-biased e-bike packs a 5.2Ah lithium-ion integrated battery that delivers a claimed range of 25-30km using pedal assist and 22-25km using the throttle. The battery can be fully charged in 3-4 hours. While the bike makes do without a multiple drivetrain system it does offer other features like disc brakes at both ends, a front suspension, and a lightweight alloy frame.
Toutche Electric Heileo M100: Rs. 49,900
Stretch your budget and you could get your hands on the Toutche Heileo M100 which is best suited off-road and city riding. The bike packs a 10.4Ah, 36V Li-Ion detachable battery with a 60km pedal assist range (50km on throttle) and a charge time of 2.5 hours. Its 250W BLDC rear hub motor is capable of topping out at 25kmph. And if you’d like to switch drivetrains, you could just as easily get off the electric assist and use the bike’s Shimano Tourney TY21 6-Speed derailleur which is perfect for beginner riders. Other bits include a front fork, front disc brake and a frame made from aluminium alloy.
EMotorad EMX: Rs 54,999
Next up is EMotorad's flagship product, the EMX, which gets a segment-first dual-suspension setup (front and rear) featuring preload adjustability. It's light, packs a number of features and is quite comfortable.
Unlike the Ezephyr, the 10.4Ah lithium-ion battery on the EMX can be easily detached using a quick-release mechanism, which means you can charge it anywhere. It takes about 4-5 hours to fully charge, after which the cycle can deliver a claimed range of 65km using pedal assist. The range drops to about 50km if you rely purely on the throttle. You also have a Shimano Tourney 21-speed drivetrain for more serious riders, front and rear shock absorbers, disc brakes and a small LED headlight which comes as part of the package.
On related news, the company launched its first first exclusive showroom (Wheelzip Mobility) in Pune last month. It intends to launch an additional four stores in the city and 100 more across the country by the end of 2022 for better customer reach. Each showroom houses EM's flagship products, EMX along with T- REX and Doodle.

Hero Lectro EHX20: Rs 1.3 lakh
Hero Cycles launched the EHX20 under its Lectro range. The Indian manufacturer has joined hands with Yamaha’s Smart Power Vehicle Business Unit in Japan to locally manufacture the e-bike in India. The electric bicycle is equipped with a detachable battery and a mid-mounted motor, both sourced from Yamaha. And if you are under the impression that the detachable battery is a cumbersome unit , you’d be wrong. Because the company claims that the battery weighs less than 2kg and can be charged in just 3 to 5 hours. It also has a claimed range of 80km.
It also gets a digital display, which displays useful rider information such as range, battery percentage and different modes. In terms of cycle parts, it gets hydraulic disc brakes at both ends and a hydraulic suspension setup at the front.
